The 1,965-square-foot exhibit space was built to the specifications of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Services so that it qualifies for many of their traveling exhibitions, as well as those of a number of other high-quality traveling exhibition companies.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Closed Friday through Sunday and on college-observed holidays. Admission to exhibits and receptions is free.

Over the last decade, the gallery has hosted a number of SITES exhibits but has also developed exhibits of its own such as the Student Juried Show, Biennial Faculty Exhibition, Extreme Pressure Biennial of American Prints, and Trains at the Holidays.

The gallery was completed in summer 1995 through the generous contributions of Frank and Gladys Webber and continues to showcase various exhibits throughout the year.

Grafted Roots Poster

Current Exhibit

“Grafted Roots: Artists Flourishing in the Sunshine State”

This exhibition is the first solo currated show of Ocala resident David Campo III. David earned his Bachelor of Arts in anthropology in 2017 from the University of Florida and later earned a Master of Arts in art history from the University of Georgia and a Master of Arts in museum studies from the University of Florida. He has been published in various exhibition catalogs and has co-currated other exhibitons.

The theme “grafted roots” refers to the agricultural technique of grafting sweet orange branches onto sour orange roots to increase resiliency to the elements. Similarly, all the artists featured in this show are transplanted from their original homes, be it from a different country, state or town. While the artists share a geographic connection, they convey a variety of unique talents and expressions.

The exhibition will be open for viewing 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, May 20-Thursday, July 18 with a opening reception Friday, May 31 at 6 p.m.
